Blush Boutique hosts Sip & Shop fundraisers
Looking for a meaningful way to give back to the community, Blush Boutique owner Laurie Klopper recently launched a series of fundraisers that are a win-win for the nonprofit and for the merchant.
For each Sip & Shop event, Blush Boutique donates 20 percent of the evening’s proceeds to the designated nonprofit. The result is a financial benefit for the nonprofit organization that also introduces its supporters to a popular local merchant that has been part of the Coventry Village neighborhood for almost nine years.
Blush Boutique offers a pleasant venue that—during Sip & Shop events—features wine and cheese, along with a carefully curated selection of products that include clothing, jewelry and accessories.
Participants have heralded the events as a fun way to give back.
Carlita Skok, board secretary of Heights Youth Theatre (HYT), said, “It was the easiest fundraiser we’ve ever done.” It was so successful that the board of HYT hopes to host another Sip & Shop in the autumn.
To date, Blush has raised more then $1,000 for local nonprofits that have included The Leukemia Lymphoma Society, the Heights High Hockey Team, Heights Youth Theatre, and Cleveland State Law Review.
